Sex/Nudity: Laura shows a little cleavage.
With Jackson wanting to show his kids a special place in Yellowstone for him and Kate in the past, Noah sarcastically states he doesn't want to know "where you and mom had sex."
While hugging her close from behind in the grocery store, Gordon playfully tells Kate, "Why don't we make a baby?" She replies that they're not making a baby in the supermarket and then playfully tells him, "Hands off the merchandise" (meaning her body). He then playfully replies that women pay him thousands to handle their "boobs" (as a breast enhancement surgeon) and that she's getting such groping for free.
Tamara shows some cleavage.
We see two shirtless male boxers in the ring.
Tamara holds up a sexy bustier in front of her clothed chest.
Tamara chats with Kate and says that it was Yuri who wanted her to get her breasts done.
We see some miscellaneous cleavage.
From a distance, we see nudity in the paintings on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, including that of "The Creation of Adam" that shows male full frontal nudity, though it isn't graphic.
We hear that Tamara had a fling with Sasha while she was dating Yuri.
Adrian and Laura briefly kiss. 3.5/10.
Violence: We see TV footage of rioting, including a windshield being smashed.
We see a large explosion on a mountain (that's from construction blasting).
We see a TV news report of mass suicides showing a body falling from a long distance, and then various dead bodies on the ground (no blood but may be disturbing).
Jackson accidentally breaks a lamp while hurrying out of bed.
A car explodes and flips while traveling through a tunnel in Paris (we later learn this was a murder).
There's some crudely drawn animation showing Charlie's depiction of the apocalypse (played for comedy), including a person being hit by a lava flow and a T-Rex from the past biting someone (no blood, all very cartoonish).
A boxer punches his distracted opponent in the face, sending him to the canvas.
Yuri's sons have a bad/condescending attitude toward Jackson, their limo driver. In response, he purposefully drops some luggage on one boy's foot.
A sudden earthquake jolt hits Kate's house, sending her and the kids scurrying for cover as the bad quake continues. Jackson arrives and yells at all of them to come with him, so they rush out to his limo and he speeds down the street that rips and splits open in a dramatic fashion, almost as if chasing them (as houses, vehicles and trees, etc. are damaged or destroyed and he drives through or into things, such as Gordon's sports car). They end up stuck behind a car with two old ladies (that ends up crashing into a raised section of street), while the limo continues on its escape route, along which greater destruction occurs (including a truck crashing into a gas station, resulting in a huge explosion). During this, they nearly drive/slide into a huge fissure (made more dangerous due to a door of the limo being gone, thus meaning Kate and the kids could fall out). As this continues, they barely drive under a bridge as it collapses, and then drive through a building as it does the same.
With Gordon marginally being qualified as a pilot, he barely lifts off with Jackson and his family, all as the runway breaks open and falls away into a huge fissure that seems to be chasing them. Once airborne, they fly through and barely above all sorts of massive city destruction. During that, we see a car hit a person (viewed from a distance), a subway train flying out through the air and then exploding upon impact with the ground, people hanging from the side of a sheared away office building, and Gordon's plane flying between that and another building as both collapse toward each other. We then see a distant aerial view of huge tracts of Los Angeles now angled out of the ground and sliding into the ocean (presumably killing thousands if not millions of people).
Jackson drives down a mountain in Charlie's RV (with Lilly in tow) as volcanic eruptions start in the valleys, followed by a massive, nuclear bomb style eruption that blows Charlie off his feet. That results in fireballs and massive burning pieces of Earth flying through the air and slamming into the ground. One of them hits Charlie, while Jackson tries to drive the RV through them, but one hits the back of the vehicle, shearing it away and causing the damaged back end to be on fire.
A volcanic eruption cloud races across the land, hitting and destroying an airport, all as Sasha and Gordon try to get a huge Russian plane off the runway as that crumbles away below them. Once in flight, the plane ends up scraping the Eiffel Tower replica, tearing off the landing gear.
We see Nima's grandmother holding down a chicken to a block where she intends to behead it, including holding the hatchet to its neck. We then hear but don't see the blow.
While not seen, it's implied that billions of people worldwide die in the calamity.
The Sistine Chapel ceiling collapses on those inside the building, while the dome of Saint Peter's Basilica's then collapses down on those below and beside it.
As a tidal wave approaches, a cruise ship starts to list, sending those inside sliding to one side. The wave then hits, turning the ship completely over (and presumably killing everyone onboard).
A massive tidal wave hits Washington, D.C., including carrying an aircraft carrier that crashes down on President Wilson and many others as the wave destroys the White House.
A plane slides toward a ravine and barely stops at the edge. It then slowly tips over the edge, falls a long way, and explodes upon impact far below (presumably killing the pilot).
A massive tsunami sweeps over many people, including a family that Adrian knows.
Yuri punches a guard in the face.
Throngs of people crowd the edge of a platform near the arks, with some falling over the edge and plummeting a long distance.
Jackson, Gordon and Tenzin end up dangling above some large door gears, with Tenzin's leg being injured, while Gordon slips down into the gears and presumably is killed, and Jackson and Tenzin then barely avoid being crushed by something large that's closing.
A massive wave washes a monastery from the top of a mountain.
A man throws his son up to a huge closing door on an ark, but ends up falling a long distance to his presumed death.
A woman presumably drowns as floodwaters rise to the top of the compartment in which she's trapped.
Carried by the tidal wave, an ark slams into a mountain, causing some damage and tossing around those inside. 7/10.
Blood/Gore: We see a TV news report of mass suicides including that showing a body falling from a long distance, and then various dead bodies on the ground (no blood, though quite disturbing).
We see a dead and partially decomposed deer (with the sound of flies buzzing about) near a drained lake.
We see several brief views of an injured or dead man who's quite bloody, along with a small pool of blood on the ground next to him.
We see a few people with slightly bloody wounds.
Tamara reacts to the bad smell onboard the ark and realizes that's from the wild animals located above her.
Tenzin's leg is bloody after being wounded.
Carl has a few slightly bloody scrapes on his face. 5/10.
Profanity: At least 1 "f" word (and another mouthed one), 6 "s" words, 1 slang term for breasts ("boobs"), 11 hells, 4 asses, 4 damns, and 6 uses of "G-damn," 3 each of "My God," "Oh God" and "Oh my God," 2 uses of "God" and "Jesus," and 1 use each of "For Christ's sakes," "For God's sakes," "Holy Mother of God," "Christ" and "Jesus Christ" as exclamations. 5.5/10.
Alcohol/Drugs: Various people have champagne at a reception.
Charlie and Jackson have beer, with Charlie having another, but Jackson takes that from him before leaving.
People have drinks on a cruise ship.
Tony has a drink.
Harry drinks several times. 4/10.
2012 is a great disaster film, and is definitely worth watching. If you like disaster movies, you'll probably enjoy this. I give it 7/10.
